DIRTY WORK

dirty work

This taut and original thriller never ceases to surprise: when the mistress of Chicago’s cruelest crime boss is murdered, four lives become enmeshed in a web of greed, ambition and corruption. They all – the cop, the politician, the maid and the crime king himself – work hard to save themselves, but no one emerges with their hands clean.

“Dirty Work” is a movie with one joke after another. I was shocked to hear this low-brow flick was directed by Bob Saget (Full House). The movie starts off with young Mitch Weaver and his buddy Sam seeking revenge on anybody who crosses their path. Sam’s father gets a heart-attack and badly needs money for surgery.

Dr. Farthing (Chevy Chase) makes a deal with the boys and if they can cough up a large amount of money to save him from his gambling debt, he will preform surgery on Pops (Jack Warden). Most of the movie is pretty damn funny. Some scenes aren’t as funny like “The bearded Lady” scene, which the movie could have done without in my opinion. The highlight in the movie is no doubt Don Rickles role as the abusive manager of a local movie theater. The movie has no real serious parts in it which is OK;

I would love to see Norm in more movies. He truly is talented. Good cast. Lots of Cameos by Ex-SNL members, including the late Chris Farley, the man who had his nose bite off by a whore!
